president obama and his challenger governor romney squaring off in their first presidential debate. but take a look at the real clear politics average of the latest national polls. this, this is the gap that mitt romney has to close in the next five weeks if he is to win on november 6th. topping our political headlines right now, vice president joe biden is on the campaign trail in the critical swing state of florida. as we mentioned a few moments ago. he talked about the gop ticket in ft. myers. >> what they're doing these days, if you notice, they're not talking anymore more about what paul ryan and governor romney are really for. they're spending an awful lot of time telling you what we, barack obama and joe biden are against and what we've done. and they just attack everything. >> the republican vice presidential candidate paul ryan also has a very busy day. congressman ryan is going to have a rally in ohio in just a couple of hours. more on that in just a moment. this morning, though, he was in derry, new hampshire. >> all these promises were made in the idea of hope and change. and peo
these days, if you notice, they're not talking anymore more about what paul ryan and governor romney are really for. they're spending an awful lot of time telling you what we, barack obama and joe biden are against and what we've done. and they just attack everything. >> the republican vice presidential candidate paul ryan also has a very busy day. congressman ryan is going to have a rally in ohio in just a couple of hours. more on that in just a moment. this morning, though, he was in derry, new hampshire. >> all these promises were made in the idea of hope and change. and people, it sounded pretty good. but when the rhetoric went aside and the time to act occurred, the ideas are the old ideas that have failed time and again. >> and as we speak, former senator rick santorum is also in ohio, getting ready to stomp for the romney campaign. he is appearing with ohio republican congressman bill johnson who is in a tough reelection race. more on all of this throughout the next hour. but we start -- we start in the buckeye state where paul ryan has the campaign event that we just mentione
governor romney handles the first minutes of his persona tonight will make a big statement about how this whole thing goes. bill: thank you, bret, we'll see you later tonight. bret baier live in denver. 8:55 eastern. you know it's important now. jamie: important enough to stay up. bill: full reaction tomorrow morning right here. jamie: republicans are now seizing on a comment by joe biden on middle class americans. the vice president was trying to fire up a crowd in the swing state of north carolina and many critics say he ended up committing his latest gaffe. you watch and decide. this is deadly earnest, man. how they can justify, how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. how in lord's name can they justify? jamie: stu varney the host of varney and company joining us. i listened to it and read tonight print, is in any other interpretation. report no, vice president biden got it absolutely right. that's an objective statement of fact. income down $4,000 in those four years. 54,000 down to $50,000. personal wealth, a lot of it destr
with you, chris. welcome to new hampshire. >> chris: thank you. what does governor romney need to do wednesday night in the first debate? >> he needs to give the american people the choice that we are offering. that is what we are doing. we owe the country a cheer choice of a different future. we can either have a dynamic growing economy that produces opportunity or we can have a stagnant economy that fosters dependency. stick with the failed policies of the last four years for the next four years or get a brighter future. stagnation versus growth. dependency versus opportunity and upper mobility. that is the classic choice and clear difference that we are offering and what we hope people get out of this this debate is that choice. >> chris: it is interesting because for the last six months the romney campaign said this is a referendum on barack obama's record and now you are saying it is a choice. >> it is not a change in strategy. a phase of the campaign we now entered into. i think it is important. the president is trying to paper over his problems and has been trying to mislead a
they have to make. >> chris: i understand that governor romney plans to make a major foreign policy speech in the next few days. do the two of you think that the president has engaged in a coverup in his and the administration's escaped explanation of what happened at the u.s. consulate in benghazi? >> i will let others decide that. there are republicans and democrats in congress calling for an investigation as we need to have. response was slow. confused. inconsistent. they first said it was a youtube video and spontaneous mob. we now know it was a planned terrorist are attack. if this was one tragic incident that would be a tragedy in and of itself. the problem it is part of a bigger picture of the fact that the obama foreign policy is literally unraveling before our eyes on the tv screens. mitt romney is going to lay out a different vision for foreign policy. one that is a policy of american strength versus what i would articulate or say the president's policy is one of weakness. we are seeing the ugli fruits of the obama foreign policy unravel around the world on our tv screens. syria
on the phone with president obama and mitt romney. dan senor is senior campaign advisor to governor romney. alan dershowitz is a criminal defense attorney. start with you, alan. two massive issues at the end of this political week. one is what to do about iran, particularly given this very effective use i thought of that bomb chart netanyahu came up with. secondly, where are we now with the israel/palestine settlement if at all? tony blair made quite encouraging remarks to me last night but he's trying to be encouraging about it for quite some time. many of us feel there's a complete stalemate and until that gets resolved, iran and everything else just spins off it. >> i met with president abbas the other day and showed him a proposal i had made in a "wall street journal" article for how to end the deadlock. the big issue is who goes first, the israelis are saying no preconditions, the palestinians are saying first you have to freeze the israelis are saying look, we froze the settlements for nine months, you didn't come to the bargaining table. so the proposal i had made is first the pales
is the media on this? governor mitt romney spoke to a foreign-policy topic forum at valley college in california. it shows president obama leading in pennsylvania by more than a point. but that did not stop the governor from blasting the president for calling deadly turmoil around the muslim world, a bump in the road. >> i don't consider 20 or 30,000 people dying just a bump in the road. or a muslim brotherhood president in egypt a bump in the road. i don't consider the killing of our diplomats in libya as a bump in the road, and i sure as heck don't consider iran becoming nuclear, a bump in the road. we need someone who recognizes what is ahead and what is willing to be done as a leader. megyn: president obama continues his campaign again today. megyn: off to the critical swing state of virginia. new polls show the race tightening their grip president obama leading governor romney by two points. 46% to 44%. that is within the margin of error. here is the policy average of all polls in virginia. the president of about four points. now some politics watchers are suggesting all of th
: jonathan hunt live at the united nations. president obama and governor romney are set to take off next week in the first presidential debate of this election. pressure is on, no doubt, with less than six weeks until election day and early voting already underway in many states. and a fundraiser today, president obama focused on a theme of political unity. >> i'm not fighting on behalf of rich values or poor values or 47% values. >> the republic nominee expressed optimism about his chances in that key battleground each as he appeared to acknowledge it will be an uphill battle. >> we really would shock people if early in the evening of november 6th it t. looked like pennsylvania was going to come our way and did come our way. that can happen. >> well, the real clear politics average of all the polls in pennsylvania give president obama an 8 point advantage now. the average of the national polls shows a tighter race with governor romney trailing by 4. campaign carl cammeron live in boston now. how are the candidates preparing for the debates. >> they can be real decision makers for the folks a
in an part of it has to do with how the electorate sees mitt romney. bottom line, the way governor romney praised his concern of those who don't pay income tax it is a needlessly divisive comment that forgot the fact many low income people pay social security and payroll taxes and are contributing. it was unfortunate statement that hurt them in the polls recently. there is an argument, think your comments were going in this direction, if you said i want everybody to pay lower rates for all, eliminate deductions, but have a fair tax 20, 23%, that is a very good argument and people would buy it. dagen: if you pay no federal income tax you don't pay a penny for the federal defense. you do not pay a dime to men and women risking their lives to protect our freedom and i think there are plenty of good arguments being made to rationalize the tax code making everybody pay at least a tiny bit of money. >> for their own reasons divided the country. dagen: we have been talking about that. go ahead. connell: your profession has come under attack. what is going on? what is going on right now? >> obama
as well as governor mitt romney. how might this impact the presidential campaign in terms of how it will relate to the first presidential debate? >> i hope that mitt romney stands strong and talks about foreign policy. because two weeks before september 11th, we heard at the dnc, you and i both did together. hey, gm is alive and osama bin laden is dead, that's not foreign policy so mitt romney has a grand opportunity to raise his poll numbers by putting obama's feet to the fire. >> there's only one candidate who politicized the death of four american heroes, you know, late at night on september 11th and he was really rebuked by many leading republicans for how, you know, just not ready for prime time he was. i think he showed his lack of depth and experience on foreign policy clearly on september 11th, but i think, you know, all of the calls and points to that this is a coverup is-- it's really laughable in a sense. i don't want to, you know, take away from the seriousness of the loss of american life, but you know, my mom always says, i look for love in all the wrong places. rep
hasn't debated since 2008. >> 10,000 bucks? >> reporter: while governor romney got some practice in during the primaries. obama campaign spokesman says the worst-case scenario is if the president falls off the stage. susan mcginnis, cbs news, washington. >> president obama will stay in washington where he'll visit democratic party headquarters and attend three fund-raisers. governor romney hold as rally in pennsylvania and has a fund raise near boston tonight. >>> the california man behind the antimuslim film that sparked deadly protests around the world is behind bars this morning. a judge ruled nakoula basseley nakoula has violated his probation. the same judge sent him to jail saying he was a flight risk and a danger to the community. two years ago he was convicted of bank fraud and was ordered to stay off the internet unless he had permission from his parole officer. but a trailer for his film was uploaded to youtube instead and that film depicts muhammad as a womanizer and religious fraud. >>> israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu will talk to president obama over the ph
in the primaries in the last year. >> barack obama is an effective debater. >> governor romney has been practicing for months. i think the invasion of normandy took less preparation than he is putting into the debates. >> hasn't had a debate against a democrat in over ten years i guess it would be probably 2002. >> i have never been in a presidential debate like this, it will be a new experience. >> is your head spinning? expectations came at a fevered pitch. yesterday afternoon we got memos. first one was a memo from romney senior adviser beth myers that couldn't stop praising the president. president obama is a universely aclaimed public speaker. voters already believe by a 25 point margin that president obama is likely to do a better job in the debates, given president obama's natural gifts and extensive seasoning under the bright lights of the debate stage. this morning, the obama campaign countered with its memo. senior adviser david axelrod. we expect mitt romney to be prepared disciplined and aggressive debater. governor pawlenty said he is as good as it gets in debating. maybe this is why
. governor pawlenty said he is as good as it gets in debating. maybe this is why the romney campaign predicted he will turn in a campaign changing performance such as ronald reagan's in 1980. here is the truth about obama and romney, neither a stellar debater. obama didn't shine in the democratic primary debates, biden won them. that's why obama picked biden. candidate obama had a tendency to ramble in the debates, got better during mccain one on ones. while romney did well in this season's gop debates, had rough performances, bet you $10,000 he did. romney performances, the unspoken body language that the camera captured, they were brutal against ted kennedy. ivy league will enjoy biden versus ryan more. trust me. >>> turning back to the brand new battleground polls. there's a different pattern emerging, president obama is ahead in new hampshire, tighter in nevada and north carolina. joining me, director of the marist poll. good to see you in person. >> welcome to the home of the new york yankees. >> you're going to blow the playoff run. >> i am worried. >> we want the beltway serie
in the spotlight this week after governor romney said people without insurance can always go to an emergency room to get care as the presidential candidates prepare to debate next week, chief medical correspondent sanjay gupta zeros in what's at stake. >> reporter: since president obama's health care law was enacted 3.1 million people under the age of 26 are now carried by their parents' plans and preventive care is carried 100% by insurance companies. seniors in particular have benefitted on prescription drugs. >> seniors who fall in the coverage gap known as the donut hole will start getting some help. they'll receive 250 dollars to help pay for prescriptions and that will, over time, fill in the donut hole. >> reporter: 5.5 million seniors have saved a total of nearly $4.5 billion on prescription drugs since the law was enacted, according to the health and human services department. he also plans to slow spending on medicare. >> i have strengthened medicare. we have added years to the life of medicare. we did it by getting rid of taxpayer subsidies to insurance companies that weren't making pe
for governor romney bbecause there s an elevated factor for him. he is on the same stage as the government -- as the president. these debates to make an impression. sometimes they have a lasting impression. often, they do not. it is an opportunity, one of the few moments in the campaign, the conventions are another, but this is the last opportunity that both candidates have to speak such -- to such a large audience at once. >> laura meckler, thank you for being with us. we have warren decker. joining us from boston, a professor alan schroeder. he has 50 -- 50 years of high risk tv. what makes a good debate and a good debater? >> i think the difference between a really good debate from my standpoint, intercollegiate debate, and debates we see at the presidential level is that a really good debate would be characterized by some depth of clash and arguments back and forth between the two. a lot of that is missing from presidential debate. the testing of ideas comes from that clash. without that clash, i think the debates to not serve quite the punch. in presidential debates, the primary funct
that and start talking about the policies. the policies are ones where i hope that governor romney is able to point out the things that president obama has said that, if the economy doesn't get better, if jobs don't get better, he doesn't deserve a second term. we still have those issues in ohio and pennsylvania, where although ohio has improved some of its unemployment, we still have concerns about manufacturing, about steel, about health care issues, about energy, which are grave concerns in both of those states. and they have to be addressed by both candidates. >> right. and this memo, by beth myers, senior adviser, highlights some of that which you just said. but she says things like, he's a universally acclaimed public speaker, he has substantial debate experience, he's a uniquely gifted speaker. all speaking about president obama. the memo goes on to say that he's been in eight presidential debates compared to -- which i guess would be five with hillary clinton and three with -- with john mccain. but this, of course, would be the very first debate for -- for governor romney. the cyni
standpoint. this 47% tape from governor romney is one of those rare moments in our polarized clutter politics that actually breaks through. the obama campaign which had stumbles early on is performing and executing pretty well right now, both in message discipline from the candidate and their tv advertisements which even republicans will tell you are better than the romney ads right now. so you add all that up, significant execution by the obama campaign, an advantage, little bump out of the convention, sure, some of is dissipated but these little things have the race and this is from republicans i talk to in swing states, trickling toward the president. is it irreversible? absolutely not. there are some people in washington who say this is over. forget what they say. there's a big debate next week. governor romney right now as we speak and ari might say he doesn't trust this poll either runs even with the incumbent democrat when voters are asked who do you most trust to handle the economy. if the challenger in this economy can't get a lead on the president on that question, he won't win. >>
over the last week that the race is starting to get away from governor romney that i think is not really founded in necessarily good data. you know, out of five polls that will come out in the week, there's always one poll that will show some margin where it shows obama winning a state like virginia or ohio or florida by a margin that's greater than he won it in 2008. i think governor romney's a stronger candidate. i think the fundamentals are better for republicans. i have a very hard time believing some of these polls that are showing, you know, obama up by ten points in a place like ohio, and especially virginia. i do expect to be in the republican column come november. >> charles blow, one of the reasons people are believing this momentum is that every poll now appears to be widening. that may be an exaggeration. i'm sure we can find one or two which remain the same, but it seems that ever since the convention, we have seen obama's fortunes get better and mitt romney's get worse. and you've got to say as the tension builds to the first debate, this is make or break week
